Help a Black teen girl leave abusive home

Hello. I am a 19 year old Black girl who recently had to quit my job because the environment was incredibly racist and made me uncomfortable. I was outed for my twitter account and had to even divulge my abusive circumstances to little to no sympathy from my bosses. Doing this, I lost 4 thousand I could’ve possibly made this summer. I’ve been living in an abusive home situation for years and lack a car in a city with limited public transit. So essentially I’ve been trapped in this house with no refuge for months. I face physical and verbal abuse daily and this has been a reality for me since I was 8. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and depression. I have been routinely kicked out the house multiple times and often have nowhere to go in times of abuse. Also, I have asthma and due to the Corona pandemic so being subjected to homelessness again is super scary for me and my health. I faced homelessness for a month and half for the summer of 2019 and had to stay at various friends houses. My other family members even gaslit me about the abuser and do nothing while I endure it. My abuser has also weaponized the police against me and called them multiple times over minor things, which can turn out violent for a black girl like myself. I’ve hid and covered for my abuser for awhile and I can’t take degrade myself for a racist work environment just so I can leave this horrid situation. I would use the money for housing accommodations in case I’m kicked out again and also trying to purchase a car which was the goal with my summer internship. I have been shy to come out about this for awhile but I can’t take this any longer and my mental health is spiraling out of control. Any donation is helpful thank you. UPDATE: thank you for the quick support!!! I also added a couple hundred to cover the fee GFM is going to take out.
